Liverpool are reportedly ready to let Joel Matip and Nat Phillips leave in the summer transfer window, with the signing of a new senior centre-back likely to be on the club’s agenda.
It’s been a difficult season at Anfield and it seems clear major changes are needed, with Matip no longer looking at his best, looking particularly poor in yesterday’s 3-0 defeat to Wolves.
The former Cameroon international has been a great servant at Liverpool for a number of years, but Football Insider now suggest they’ll be ready to listen to offers for him in the summer, with a replacement on their radar.
Phillips is another defender Liverpool surely need to offload after his lack of playing time recently, but it remains to be seen who LFC will be targeting to strengthen their back line.
Liverpool have a number of other players who now look to be past their peak despite having great careers at the club for so long.
Mohamed Salah, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson are others who no longer look as effective as they used to be, so it could be worth a major overhaul in several positions this summer.
